Civic Awards Nomination
Every day in Bollington people who care about our community make a positive and worthwhile contribution which affects the lives of others. Sometimes these acts go unrecognised but this can be remedied by nominating those people for a Civic Award.
Bollington Civic Award
To qualify for the Bollington Civic Award, the nominee must have made a significant contribution and a difference to the residents of Bollington by showing outstanding service for the benefit of the community, on a voluntary basis.
Civic Awards are presented each year on Civic Sunday in June, however the date presentations are made may be subject to change depending on the social distancing restrictions in place at the time.
Recognises a young person (under 18 years of age) who has made a significant, positive contribution to the community by helping others or striving to improve their town.
Adult Volunteering in Youth Services
Recognises a person who has devoted themselves to volunteering in one or many Bollington youth groups.
Bollington Based Business
Recognises a business that has engaged and contributed to the community.
Long Service in the Community
Recognises a person’s commitment to the community over a significant period of time (over 10 years).
Mayor’s Commendation for Services to the Community
Recognises a person who has made an outstanding contribution to Bollington.
Mayor’s Commendations are presented each year at The Big Thank You in September, however the date presentations are made may be subject to change depending on the social distancing restrictions in place at the time.

Award Presentations 2020
Town Mayor for 2020-2021, Councillor John Stewart, presented Civic Awards and Mayor’s Commendations to those who were nominated by members of the public for the outstanding contribution that they make to Bollington.
